This should give the US Congress more time to agree on 12 budget bills and pass them.

US President Joe Biden on Friday, March 1, signed a bill to continue temporary funding for the federal government to avoid a shutdown from the next day. This was reported by the White House press service.

The law continues funding for some federal government programs until March 8, and for others until March 22.

This should give the US Congress more time to agree on 12 budget bills and pass them. Earlier in the day, lawmakers agreed on the most urgent funding bill to be voted on next week.

We remind you that the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Mike Johnson said that the bill on additional funding for Ukraine will be considered as soon as the issue of funding the federal government is resolved.

As you know, on February 13, the US Senate supported a package that provides more than $60 billion for Ukraine, mainly for military aid. But the Senate’s decision to appropriate the money is not enough – the bill must be passed by the House of Representatives.
